Fine Dining at Château de Francs

Yesterday was my anniversary…in case you missed that post. Tuesdays are notoriously busy for our family and yesterday was even more so. There was no time for dinner dates or movies or any such thing that couples do to commemorate their wedding day. So, the girls and I decided to get a little creative.

The Eldest whipped out some invitations (sent via e-mail, R.S.V.P. required).

Never heard of Château de Francs? Why, it’s the fanciest little place…we also call it “home” (or sometimes “the parsonage”). Château de Francs is translated…

…”Castle of the Franks.” Yes, we are the king and queen of our castle. 😉  (Sign courtesy of The Youngest.)

The Eldest designed some fabulous menus, though I was mostly responsible for actually cooking items on the menu.

The service was excellent. Best part: we didn’t have to leave a tip!

They were very attentive to our needs, though I will say, The Youngest waitress did get a little crazy with the tea service.

Dinner was delicious. No one minded one bit that I cheated and bought salad + bread sticks from Olive Garden. 🙂 We finished off the meal with chocolate lava cakes, reminiscent of the ones we ate on our 10th anniversary cruise. Side note: the cakes were easy to make and yummy, but they are VERY rich. I would recommend cutting some of the chocolate with a dollop of vanilla ice cream…which I plan to do with the leftovers.  😉

We were left to dine alone by candlelight while the waitresses ate in the “servant’s quarters” (otherwise known as “the game room”). The girls had a great time and, other than having to cook and wash dishes, it better than any old restaurant. Château de Francs just might be the best place to eat in town!


For the record…I do own more than one shirt. I just noticed that this blue one keeps popping up in blog posts lately! LOL!
